Relevance of various criteria

The composition of the share basket is determined by the trading department of Zürcher Kantonalbank (ZKB) based on a design by FRZ Flughafenregion Zürich. Swiss companies are selected which are based in the canton of Zurich and are dependent on the airport due to their internationality or benefit from its proximity and charisma. In addition, shares listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange with a minimum market capitalization of more than CHF 500 million that have a published "market weight" or "overweight" rating from Zürcher Kantonalbank's research prior to inclusion in the basket are exclusively eligible.

Regional connection

The share basket enables an investment with a regional connection and thus an identification of the potential investors with the companies included. "The tracker certificate emphasizes the economic importance of the region," explains Peter Arnold, Head Communications & Partnerships at FRZ Flughafenregion Zürich. FRZ is possibly one of the first location development organizations in the world to take such an initiative.

Outstanding companies create a positive image that reflects on the entire region. The design of the financial product is based on the following hypothesis: Airport regions are regions with above-average growth. Accordingly, the companies operating in this region should have above-average potential.
